This place is awful! The room was clean but very outdated and beds were so uncomfortable! Pool was filthy both times we attempted to use! The hotel has a nightclub that attracts trash! Would never had stayed here had I known! There were fights and loud music til after 2 am on our second night there! Security never did much! Was up half the night for the front desk to just say nothing when checking out. Will never be back! My daughter was terrified by all the screaming right outside our door!

The property is big and signage could be better (where’s the ice machine?). The rooms were fairly clean but need updating. The carpet in our room was buckling and really should be replaced. The fixtures were clean but well worn. The restaurant was ok. Service was very good. The bar area looked very popular. The crowd seemed to be enjoying themselves. Front desk staff was very friendly and efficient.

My husband and I will stay here again. Staff was great. Beds comfortable, Rooms clean. We had a good breakfast. We took a short walk around the lovely grounds. They had live music outside in the bar area which was great fun.

The hotel rooms are in very poor condition and the customer service is sub-par. The first room Assigned to us had a non functioning lock. We requested a different room and was told there were no other rooms available and that it was going to take only 15 mins to be fixed which was not the case. We waited 2 hours with someone in our room trying to fix the lock with the door wide open and us being unable to use the room or the bathroom. Finally they told us they couldn’t fix the lock. The lady at the desk did not offer any apologies and magically had a new room available. The new room had a moldy dirty vent and an old yellow looking toilet seat. We reported that and was told there were no other rooms available as they had been telling us from the moment we arrived at the hotel. The amenities are not bad but i would not recommend this hotel for the issues mentioned above.
